Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it . . .
Duff here. I watched Mom as She wrote My Sentiments about this Special Day. And She was in tears. Tears for Those who had lost Loved Ones in Combat. Those who bravely went into Battle, even though They were scared to death. Tears for Those who never Returned. Tears for Those who have Issues after coming Home. Tears of gratitude for the Families at home, valiantly Supporting Them. Tears for Those who Trained Our Members of the Armed Forces, not just about techniques but Awareness. Sadness and gratitude intertwined.
You inspire the world with Your bravery, Courage, and steadfast fortitude. Thank you, thank you to all past, present, and future members of the Armed Forces. We would not be the Country We are without You. We owe You so much. Your Service and Sacrifice will never be forgotten.
The Duff and His Mom, Joan
